UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The Centre County Airport Authority and University Park Airport together with Delta Air Lines will begin offering weekly nonstop service between University Park Airport (SCE) and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) from June 7 to Aug. 30, 2014. The Delta flights will be operated by ExpressJet using 50-seat regional jet aircraft and will leave University Park Airport every Saturday. Flight reservations are available immediately.
“Atlanta is a key destination for domestic flights from University Park Airport, with even greater demand during the summer months,” said James Meyer, director of the Centre County Airport. “The new service will allow for easy connections to a wide variety of domestic cities, as well as many vacation destinations serviced by Delta’s Latin and Caribbean flights, such as Belize, Guatemala, Mexico City and the gateway to the Turks and Cacaos.”
This new schedule comes just one month after the addition of twice daily nonstop United flights from University Park Airport to Chicago, which facilitates travel to the west coast and Far East. The new nonstop Delta flights to Atlanta further enhance University Park Airport’s ability to serve customers in this region.
“Many factors go into an airline’s decision to add new routes, and we’re thrilled that Delta has scheduled this new nonstop destination for the busy summer months,” said Bryan Rodgers, director of the University Park Airport. “Nonstop flights are among our customers’ highest priority when traveling, and the addition of this schedule helps us meet our goal of providing convenience, comfort, reliability and flexibility.”
On Jan. 23, 2014, Delta Air Lines was named the 2014 Airline of the Year by Air Transport World magazine, the first time for a U.S. carrier in a decade. Delta, US Airways and United all serve University Park Airport. Morning, afternoon and evening flights daily make it easy to connect to destinations around the world.
